Delaware drug investigation results in multiple arrests

LEWES, Del. - A month long drug investigation in Rehoboth Beach led to the arrest of six people and seizure of a variety of drugs and over $2,000 in cash.

During the month of June, the Rehoboth Beach Police Department, along with Troop 7 of the Delaware State Police, gathered information about the possible sale of drugs at a house on the 1700 block of Callaway Drive in Fairway Village. Further investigation revealed that Rehoboth Beach residents 34-year-old Chelsea Coffin and 41-year-old Aaron Jones had lived at a house on the block that was often visited by 17-year-old Talim Muhammad-Hunt, of Philadelphia, PA and 20-year-old Demetrius Greene, of Lewes.

According to the report, on Thursday July 12, around 2:20 PM, troopers witnessed Hunt and Greene leave the suspected drug house and walk over to the Midway Movie Theater parking lot to make a phone call to 26-year-old Felicia N. League, of Rehoboth Beach. Troopers say League then went to the Fairway Village home, grabbed a large grey metal box, got into a vehicle being driven by a 47-year-old Salisbury man, and began traveling towards the theater. 

Officials say that a traffic stop was conducted before the vehicle arrived at the movie theater and a subsequent search of the vehicle revealed a grey lock box, over $300 in cash and drug paraphernalia. The driver from Salisbury was also searched and reportedly had 9.5 pills each containing 7.5 mg of Hydrocodone. League and the 47-year-old were allegedly taken into custody without incident.

Police then contacted Muhammad-Hunt as he was leaving the moving theater and reportedly found over $2,400 in cash in his possession. Investigators were also able to locate Greene who was allegedly hiding in the bathroom. According to the report, Greene had some marijuana and 20 small plastic vials containing crack cocaine.

All four suspects were arrested and taken back to Troop 7 while officials obtained a search warrant for the Fairway Village home and the grey lock box. Troopers say that they found 651 bags containing 4.557 grams of heroin, 3.01 grams of powder cocaine, 159 plastic vials containing 11.58 grams of crack cocaine, and a small quantity of marijuana in the lock box. When officials executed the warrant on the home they found drug paraphernalia throughout the residence along with Coffin and Jones, who they apparently took into custody.

Investigators say Coffin and Jones were both charged with maintaining a drug property and possession of drug paraphernalia, arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court 2, and released on $3,200 unsecured bond each.
